Work we've done with Prize so far has been absolutely with an eye to
broader usage, with the description currently being simply "The prize
awarded for an event."

On that note is Event too restrictive?  I don't think so, as a prize is
always awarded for some sort of competition, which is in turn always some
sort of event - but would welcome contrary opinions.  Apologies in the
delay for sharing the full model, hopefully will be cleared to do so
